Startups of the week: Internet of Things

Unlike the other topics we’ve broached, the concept of “Internet of Things” is captured within its name: it describes the activation of physical objects via a network connectivity. 

Earlier this weekStartup Juncture featured an interview with Wienke Giezeman, the creator of The Things Network, an open system approach toInternet of Things, which now covers the entire city of Amsterdam. The network, according to Giezeman, strives to democratize IoT without a payment exchange.
